Mosaic Monday: Lupins

2010 06 Lupines collage

These are not “native” flowers in Sweden but by now widely spread. I remember them from my early childhood (and onwards) growing along the railway running by my grandparents’ house; but in many other places too, around Midsummer.

For more Monday Mosaics, visit Mary’s Little Red House.

These are great pictures. I have been trying to identify some flowers like this, only orange, these may be the ones! I have not posted them yet till I find out what they are.

I've only seen them in colours ranging from white to purple but perhaps there are hybrids in other colours too.

Beautiful!!

I'm in Texas and we have a special love for Lupins - but we call them Bluebonnets - they (the blue variety) are our state flower and we they are very special to us all here. They are just so gorgeous - in every color!!

DawnTreader's Picture Book

For this blog, I have chosen a template that allows me to show pictures as big as possible . Some of the things you usually find in the sidebar, you will find here at the bottom of the page instead - Blog Archive, Followers etc.







My camera is a Nikon Coolpix 4600.
For basic editing of most photos and collages I use Picasa 3.
Sometimes I also experiment with some more "artistic" effects in Photoshop Elements or Paint Shop Pro.
